  8. Use the JOY word dies and a pencil to trace around the die onto the white cardstock to create a shadow.

  9. Cut out the shadow layer using scissors.

  10. Adhere gold glitter die-cuts onto their white cardstock shadow layer.

  11. Trim down multiple Greens and white cardstock into 3 inch wide strips and run them through the Sticker Maker. 

  12. Die-cut foliage from the green and white cardstock papers.

  13. Adhere the J & Y of the JOY die cuts onto the card front.

  14. Arrange half your foliage die-cuts above the J & Y. Repeat below the letters as well.

  15. Adhere the snowflake in the center to cover the stems of the foliage pieces.

  16. Wrap Twine around the bottom portion of the card front and add a button topped bow.
